26 Customs Police Officers in Calafat Detained for Corruption, Police Detention Center Overcrowded

26 Customs Police Officers in Calafat were detained for corruption. The officers are suspected of bribery and abuse of power, with one allegedly making over 500 euros in a single shift from the 5-euro fee collected from each vehicle crossing the border.

During searches, a total of 155,000 euros, 70,000 lei, perfumes, and cigarettes were found in their residences.

The Customs officers had been under investigation by the DNA since 2022, with surveillance lasting until November 2023.

The situation became complicated after the issuance of detention orders, as there were no available spaces in the Dolj Police Detention Center, requiring assistance from police in neighboring counties to accommodate the accused.
